Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the early life and career of John Duns Scotus at Oxford University. Scotus studied theology and philosophy in Oxford, and was ordained a priest in 1291. He was later selected to become a master of divinity at Oxford, and delivered a masterly course on systematic theology that would change his life and interrupt his Oxonian and English career. The chapter suggests that Scotus's Lectura I–II are the key to the revolutionary turn in his life.
